Mini Assignment #4 COMP 206

Arrays and Functions in C

Labs E and F will provide some background help for this mini assignment.
QUESTION 1: reverse.c
Write a C program called: ./reverse WORD1 WORD2
Where:
• WORD1 is a series of characters without spaces, forming a single word.
• WORD2 is a series of characters without spaces, forming a single word.
The source file is called: reverse.c
The executable file is called: reverse
The program takes as input from the command line two words and checks to see if
WORD2 is the reverse of WORD1. For example: abcd is the reverse of dcba.
Your program must do the following in order in main():
1. Return an error message and halt the program when the user does not provide
exactly 2 arguments at the command line. Display the following message:
“Wrong number of arguments. Please input: ./reverse WORD1 WORD2.”
Program terminates with the 1 code.
2. Check to see if WORD2 is the reverse of WORD1.
3. Display “WORD1=%s WORD2=%s – REVERSE” if is is the reverse, or
display “WORD1=%s WORD2=%s – NOT REVERSE” if it is not the reverse.
4. Program terminates with the zero code
QUESTION 2: matrix.c
Write a C program called : ./matrix
The source file is called : matrix.c
The executable file is called : matrix
A matrix in algebra is an array of numbers arranged in rows and columns. In C, it is
common to implement Matrices using two dimensional arrays. We will be focusing on
manipulating a fixed size 5×5 square matrix (5 rows and 5 columns).
Create a C program called matrix.c that implements multiple matrix related functions.
The functions that you must implement are the following:

1. Write a function that will fill a 5×5 matrix by randomly generated numbers. You
can use the rand() and/or srand() functions provided by <stdlib.h library to generate random numbers between 1 and 100. The signature of the function you will
create is:
void fillMatrix(int matrix[ROWS][COLS]);
ROWS and COLS are global constants defined as follow at the beginning
of your c file:
#define ROWS 5
#define COLS 5
2. Write a function that given a 5×5 matrix as argument, will print each row of the
matrix to the screen line by line. The signature of the function you will create is:
void printMatrix(int matrix[rows][cols]);
Use array notation to format your output.
3. In algebra, the transpose of a matrix is a matrix whose rows are the columns of the
original. Write a function that will take a 5×5 matrix as parameter and then transpose it in-place (which means without the use of an extra or a temporary matrix
while transposing). The signature of the function you will create is:
void transposeMatrix(int matrix[rows][cols]);
Use pointer notation in your implementation. Do not use array index.
4. Write a function that given three matrices as parameters (two as input matrices and
one as output), will calculate the product of the first 2 matrices and place the result
in the third one. The signature of the function you will create is:
void multiplyMatrix(int m1[2][cols],
int m2[rows][cols],
int resultMatrix[rows][cols])
Note that the first matrix isn’t 5×5. Extra space in resultMatrix should be
filled with zero. resultMatrix will hold the result of the multiplication of m1
X m2.
Use regular array notation in your implementation. You can use the array
index.
The main() function that will be used to test your functions is provided as follow:

int main()
{
int matrix[rows][cols];
fillMatrix(matrix);
printMatrix(matrix);
transposeMatrix(matrix);
printMatrix(matrix);
int matrix2[2][cols]={0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9};
int matrixResult[rows][cols];
multiplyMatrix(matrix2, matrix, matrixResult);
printMatrix(matrixResult);
return 0;
}
IMPORTANT
You must use mimi.cs.mcgill.ca to create the solutions to this assignment. You cannot
use your Mac command-line, Windows command-line, nor a Linux distro installed
locally on your laptop. You can ssh or putty from your laptop to mimi, or you can go
to the third floor of Trottier and use any of those labs, to complete this assignment.
WHAT TO HAND IN
Everything must be submitted to My Courses before the due date. Remember that you
can hand in your assignment up to two days late but there will be a penalty of 5% each
day. After that, your assignment will not be accepted. Please hand in the following:
• The reverse.c file
• The matrix.c file
• A bash compile.sh script that compiles the programs for the TA using gcc.
• Do not hand in the executable
• Zip all these files so that myCourses will receive them correctly.
• Make sure to add comments to your C program.
• Add your name and student ID number as a comment.

HOW IT WILL BE GRADED
THE TESTING SCRIPT
The TA will run a testing script when evaluating your assignment. This test script is
included in the assignment. You can use this testing script to verify that your program
runs correctly. The script file is called mini4testerReverse.sh. and
Mini4TesterMatrix.sh
POINTS AWARDED
The assignment is worth a total of 20 points.
o 10 points for Question 1
• 2 points – code looks professional (pretty)
• 2 point – command line arguments
• 1 point – errors message for wrong parameters
• 4 point – validates reverse correctly
• 1 point – displays correct final output
o 10 points for Question 2
• 2 points – code looks professional (pretty)
• 2 points – fillMatrix()
• 1 points – printMatrix()
• 2 point – transposeMatrix()
• 3 point – multiplyMatrix()
GRADING RULES
The following rules are followed by the TA when grading assignments:
• A program must run in order to get a grade (even if it does not run well). If it
does not run (does not compile) it will receive a zero. (Make sure to run your
programs from mimi.cs.mcgill.ca).
• The TA will grade using the mimi.cs.mcgill.ca server.
• All questions are graded proportionally. This means that if 40% of the question is
correct, you will receive 40% of the grade.
